Our guida was Inna, and she was excellent: the information she gives is interesting and timely, while also giving us space to relax, either on the bus, on our free time at the villages where we stopped, or on the train/boat. The tour included a smooth and confortable bus ride to Manarola, where we spent approximatedly 1 hour, then a train ride to Monterosso, where we spent approximatedly 2 hours (we had lunch here), followed by a boat ride that offered views from the ocean side to all of the 5 villages that make Cinque Terre (with a brief 15 minute stop at a village not officially part of Cinque Terre), followed by a bus ride back to Milan. The tour was professional, well-run, and very organized, allowing us enough time to explore the villages without any rush, and giving us interesting information about the places we passed / visited.
Really enjoyed this trip, each of the villages were beautiful. You get about 1 hour in each of the villages, maybe a bit more in 1 of them to have a some food and a swim. The trip is well planned out (if the trains are on time). The tour guide was brilliant and gave a bit of information about each village as we arrived there. The boat trip was good but a bit bumpy but fantastic views on the boat. It was especially nice as the villages were a lot less crowded than usual due to the pandemic. Would definitely recommend this trip as a way to see Cinque Terre in 1 day.
Cinque Terre was simply mesmerizing. The guide on the way there was both driving and talking (not as loud), and was a bit harder to understand, but as the tour proceeded he showed up to be quite caring and respectful of the group pace and speed. Also quite friendly and never hesitated to explain anything at his reach. Really enjoyed it. Only part I didn't like was on the way back, had to climb the hill to the van by foot, under the heavy sun and sweating like crazy, but I understand that it was somewhat necessary.
i had so much fun! the host (his name started with a C but i cant quite remember) was amazing. a great way to see cinque terre: HOWEVER, the only downside is that the itinerary was not accurate to what we did, we only spent 5 or 10 minutes on the boat, and we went to the villages in kind of an odd order. however super fun, just dont do this for the boat ride!
Amazing experience! Everything was perfect the villages are so beautiful and worth seeing our amazing tour leader Constantino Galluzzo was so well informed, funny, sweet and always eager to help all of us ! I highly recommend doing the trip
